Arena Place – A hotspot for first time buyers

Arena Place

Discerning home-hunters have been quick to secure their pick of the plots, following the successful launch of Arena Place, Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after new development in Colchester, Essex

This exciting collection of new homes – located off Napier Road – offers a stunning selection of one, two, three and four bedroom designs, comprising newbuild properties and beautiful homes within refurbished former garrison buildings.

There is currently a choice of carefully refurbished two and three bedroom homes available to reserve at Arena Place, with prices starting from just £215,000 – ideal for first time buyers.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, said, “We are absolutely delighted with the fantastic response we’ve received, following the launch of Arena Place, and would urge property-seekers to visit us without delay to discover what this outstanding development of high-quality homes has to offer.

“By acting now, home-hunters can be among the first to choose their perfect property from this fabulous collection – and make sure someone else doesn’t beat them to it!”

Each of the new homes at Arena Place has been finished to a high standard specification, including a fully fitted kitchen, complete with integrated appliances and half-height tiling in the bathrooms and en suites, while the refurbished properties also boast stunning features such as vaulted ceilings, exposed internal brickwork and original windows.

Situated on the outskirts of Colchester, Arena Place is located on the historic site of the former Colchester Garrison, while the remains of Britain’s only known Roman circus were discovered on the southern part of the site in 2005.

The town offers a wide variety of amenities for everyday living, including a range of supermarkets and convenience stores, a selection of pubs and restaurants, plus an array of high street shops and cafés in the nearby Lion Walk Shopping Centre.

For leisure opportunities, Colchester boasts several museums, including Colchester Castle, which is home to the biggest keep built in the UK and provides opportunities for picturesque walks around the grounds. Arena Leisure Centre is also near to the development, while Colchester Zoo is just over three miles away.

Families will appreciate that Arena Place is situated within close proximity to a wide choice of schools and nurseries, including Butterfly Blue Day Nursery and St John’s Green Primary School – which was rated ‘good’ in its latest Ofsted report. For further education, Sixth Form College Colchester is also nearby.

For commuters, Colchester Town railway station is just a short walk from Arena Place, and provides regular direct services to Colchester, London Liverpool Street and Walton-on-the-Naze. For road links, the nearby A12 offers routes northeast for Ipswich and southwest for Chelmsford and Romford.

Prospective buyers can visit the Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Napier Road, Colchester, Essex, CO2 7GA, which is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5.30pm. Alternatively, the Sales Executive can be contacted on 01206 581 096.
